Wine & Roses Charity Wine Tasting | ChezSheila

ChezSheila interviews Abel Woldemichael, owner of Muzita Abyssinian Bistro located in the University Heights neighborhood of San Diego. Muzita Bistro offers authentic Abyssinian (Eritrean/Ethiopian) food. The main focus of Muzita Bistro is the exquisite food. We use locally grown produce to make dishes that are reminiscent of the old country. This is food and African hospitality at its best. Muzita Bistro will be one of many restaurants participating in this year’s Wine and Roses Charity Wine Tasting event on June 10, 2012 at Liberty Station in San Diego, California.

Sponsored by San Diego Social Service Auxiliary & San Diego International Wine Competition and benefiting Camp Oliver.

Camp Oliver, located in Descanso, California, San Diego County, is a year round 20 acre non-denominational non-profit camp that has been operated by the Sisters of Social Service since 1949. It is a place where children of all ages learn leadership, interpersonal skills, appreciation and respect for nature, and grow toward maturity in a relaxed and safe environment.

The Social Service Auxiliary, the sponsoring organization for 58 years, the Juniors of Social Service and underwriters have made it possible for over 10,000 children to spend a week at camp. The goal is to ensure that children from disadvantaged low income families are never turned away. That is the campership fund in action!

The Social Service Auxiliary also works year round to provide funds to maintain and upgrade existing Camp Oliver facilities. As Camp Oliver has aged, it is now time for some renewal projects. Suggestions of business or building suppliers that may help with the Camp Oliver Wish List are most welcome. Send suggestions to
